Atticus 1 travelled last night to a resurgent Waterloo who are on a charge to avoid an immediate return to Division 2. Thank goodness Atticus 1 secured safety last week. The Home fixture earlier in the season gave a 7:5-0:5 victory to Atticus 1 but this match was always going to be a much tighter affair.

Atticus 1 had some regulars missing but we put a decent side out nevertheless.

After about an hour I checked all the games and we looked solid on most boards. When I checked about twenty minutes later we were already staring defeat in the match!

Board 1: Dave James v Gary Quillan

Gary played a Czech Benoni type opening and the position looked double-edged. Dave castled Queenside while Gary piled on pressure and was about to mate with his Knight on b3 just out of the opening when Dave resigned.

Board 2. Colin Horton v Luke Boumphrey.

Luke played his favourite Sicilian Dragon, but Colin castled King-side nullifying the attack and played Nc3-e2 which was super solid and Karpovian. When I next looked Luke had somehow lost the exchange and more material was going and we were two down already!

Board 3. Nick Martin v Graham Williamson.

I played the English but Graham got into a Stonewall Dutch quickly though lost a couple of tempi. We both moved Knights to and fro and I twice turned Graham's draw offer down. But in trying to get play my time was running down and the draw was then agreed on the 3rd offer.

Board 4. Peter O'Driscoll v John Lambert saw John win a pawn playing his Sicilian. Pieces came off and John went for the win leaving his king exposed. However John had a perpetual check but with little time on his clock lost on time undeservedly.

Board 5. Mark Wadsworth v Paul Stephenson. It is great to see Paul back playing and Mark played his favourite English but Paul calmly equalised and in a solid position the draw was agreed.

Board 6. Graeme Solomon v Sanjoy. Unfortunately Sanjoy misplayed the opening and lost the f7 pawn and the exchange. He battled valiently but could not generate counterplay and lost.

Board 7. Tom Webb v Scott Bradshaw. Tom got a reasonable Queen's pawn position but made a blunder which lost a piece and Scott won smoothly.

Board 8. Luke Scaife v Howard Sleeman. Luke played Giuoco Piano and Howard got pressure leading to a pawn win and positional advantage. He still looked to be winning when he generously offerred a draw. Howard's was by far our best game of the night.

So we were well outplayed in a 6:5-1:5 drubbing leaving Atticus 1 lower mid-table while Waterloo retain a decent chance of escaping relegation with Wallasey and Aigburth 1 unexpectedly also facing the drop as the season culminates.
